The Jung Society of Utah Presents: Dream Dialogue Workshop with Machiel Klerk @ Studio Elevn | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Dream Dialogue
A relational and experiential approach towards dreaming

Saturday workshop: We will explore how dreams can be used as an awareness practice. This has roots in the lucid dreaming and the old Buddhist tradition of dream yoga. In order to do that we will look at three basic characteristics of dreams and play with the different states of consciousness that arise out of this exploration. We will also do some experiential oriented dreamwork, in which you get in touch with your body and build a relationship and experience with the dream beings.

Day: June 13th
Time: 9am – 4pm
Location: Studio Elevn – 435 W 400 S Suite 304, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Cost: $99 (incl 5CEs, and lunch is on your own)
